Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2017


U.S. stocks moved higher due to signs of an improving global economy and hopes of pro-growth initiatives from Congress and a new administration.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark.

We believe stocks are reasonably valued but that companies will need to demonstrate earnings growth to drive stock prices higher. We remain confident about the path to earnings growth for the companies we hold.
